. the conservative columnist charles krauthammer is driving the same thing now. it is still really senator john mccain. over the past week senator john mccain made six different television appearances just to talk about the benghazi attack and obama administration cover-up of the attack making his case over and over and over again to any blinking red light within sight about how benghazi should not be viewed as an attack on a u.s. consulate but instead be viewed as a democratic lie. an obama scandal. the senate needs more information about this blatant cover-up, says john mccain. john mccain needs more information. this, for example, is john mccain convening a press conference yesterday morning denouncing the scandal that congress is not being given enough information about this horrible scandal that he can't get any answers on. while john mccain was demanding answers at this press conference, that he convened yesterday morning, some of this colleagues, from a committee that he's a member of, were getting answers. on the subject that he was so mad about. john mccain was missing a three-hour high-l
is that john of the other republicans ever liked mitt romney and he didn't do anything during the campaign to endear himself to them. don't forget, he attacked them all in the primaries. this is kind of the revenge of the clowns here. he knocked them off one at a time. he sort of knocked them over in iowa and elsewhere around the campaign trail. number two, his campaign was based on a negative. it was based on the idea that he would have to win because president obama was so bad. there was no philosophy to it. mitt romney's campaign was kind of the end of the line of the conservative era that began coherently with ronald reagan in 1980. mitt romney was the ultimate remainder man. that's why they have an easier time of dumping on him right now. >> so the clown car has backed up to run over mitt romney. that's the image for the night tonight. >> yes, it is. >> like that woman who didn't like her husband, remember she drove over her husband in the parking lot and drove over him again. i don't want to get involved in that legal case but i do remember the pictures. let's go to john heilemann he
fiction and has strong words for john mccain. >>> president obama meets with house and senate leadership to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> i think we're all aware that we have some urgent business to do. i think all of us agree on this and this is action. >> we'll have congressman chris van hollen here to expose the problem. >>> governor scott walker joins rick perry in opposition to health care. john nick els joins us with the latest. >>> secessionists are coming out of the woodwork. wait until you hear their reasons. >> good to have you with us. thanks for watching president the right wing afelt to gin up a scandal is falling apart. republicans have declared the president is covering up information about benghazi. republicans gave us a pregame of accusations, involving ambassador susan rice. some house members say this is worse than watergate. >> this is not simply a coverup of a third-rate burglary. we have four of our diplomatic personnel dead and it has not a mccarthy era tactic to demand that the american people ares no misinformed about it to the point that they don't know what the th
on current.com about john kerry and why president obama should give him the job of secretary of state and not ambassador susan rice. nothing against ambassador susan rice. it is just that john kerry deserves it. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and oh, by the way again without john kerry saying oh yeah, president obama, barack obama you can do the keynote speech in 2004 when you're only a state senator who's running for senate without that opportunity, there is no obama campaign in 2008. john kerry wants the job. give it to him. got some guy malcolm johnson would calls that 100% idiotic statement. too bad, malcolm. that's how it is. special shout out to the folks on twitter. dab ra and alan -- debra and alan and a couple of others. honesty following us on twitter. >> tweeting at bp show, on this topic, patricia says the media has been reduced to reporting g.o.p. conspiracy theories which is a good point. buckeye kenny saying they're going to try to turn this into something to ruin the presid
of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a b
passed already, with those rates and john boehner responded. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this and i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. >> i think in stead of the house moving on the senate bill, the senate ought to move on the house bill. >> so the debate has been engaged. it's going to be an interesting conversation on friday to get it started. >> that's right. he'll have the senate leaders and house leaders over to talk about this. one of the things that was so clear from that press conference was that the president is saying let's move this forward, let's move this forward now. he is certainly realizing that when you look at the four years that he has ahead of him, really it about the next 18 months to two years. that's when he has a mandate that, when he has political capital to spend. quickly he also wants to forestall some of these tax hikes that could come as early as january. john boehner initially said, lis
defense of susan rice over the benghazi issue. she's been sharply criticized by john mccain and lindsey crime graham who said if she's nominated as secretary of state it's not going to fly. boy, obama came all but saying just bring it on because i'm going to defend her. >> that was absolutely fierce defense. that part press conference really sort of blew me back there, listening to that defense. but i also did hear lindsey graham and john mccain talking earlier today, and they were just as fierce on the other side. and one thing president obama kept saying is that this basically-- her coming out and saying who she did in the early days wasn't her fault because she was not responsible for benghazi. but that's basically what john mccain and lindsey graham are saying. that she wasn't responsible for benghazi, so why did the white house put her out there? and they're saying only for political rains. and they criticize ambassador rice for not asking more questions. she got a briefing. she got a briefing on the latest intelligence, says the white house. the white house says they're the ones t
to the department of defense the matter involving general john allen. >> the pentagon is rocked as a top u.s. general is linked to the petraeus scandal. >> the u.s. commander in afghanistan is under investigation for alleged inappropriate communications with jill kelley. >> the sex scandal began when kelley received harassing e-mails from petraeus's biographer and mistress paula broadwell. >> federal agents were at paula broadwell's north carolina home last night for more than four hours. >> the fbi agent who launched the investigation that led to petraeus resigning is himself being investigated. he sent shirtless pictures of himself to ms. kelley. >> where do shirtless pictures come into the scene? >> you know, remember when we said you couldn't have made this case up. >> president obama will likely nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. >>> the founder of the mcafee software company is wanted for questioning in a murder. mcafee hasn't been seen since. >>> a scandal on "sesame street." the puppeteer who performs as elmo admitted to having a r
're digging their heels in. instead we saw joshing around the table about john boehner's birthday between the president and john boehner. is it any different, or is this just about, i don't know, smoke and mirrors? >> well, i think the atmosphere is certainly different as you mentioned. in the past, these guys would go back to capitol hill and put out competing statements about what went on during the meetings. you saw what happened last year during the debt ceiling negotiations. this time it was one big happy family. there certainly seems to be some sort of recognition on the part of how fed up american people with sort of the seeing this game of chicken being played at such a high stakes time. i think there is certainly, after this election, there is kind of a let's get down to business. let's see if we can get this thing done. whether that can translate -- david just said, the biggest sticking point, taxes on the wealthy is still on the table. you can sing happy birthday to john boehner as much as you want. gwen: he would still say no. >> absolutely. i think it's really premature to tr
john mccain and lindsey graham that they would oppose her nomination to be secretary of state based on remarks she made about the benghazi attacks. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received, and to besmerch her reputation is outrageous. >> indeed. let's get to our panel julian epstein, lynn sweet, washington bureau sweet for chicago "sun-times" and msnbc political analyst professor michael eric dyson of georgetown university. professor dyson,fy might begin with you, perhaps the most hated moment in that press conference was the president's barely concealed anger that republicans have been attacking ambassador susan rice for the confusion surrounding the benghazi consulate attacks. this, as you know, has been the drum beat from republicans from the right wing media for weeks. do you think the president's response will do anything to silence the drums? >> unfortunately
exchanged with general john allen. and who is general john allen? he is the top u.s. commander in afghanistan and he is the man who's nominated to be the supreme leader of nato. as you can imagine that, nomination was put on hold in light of all of these allegations. for the record, general allen denies any inappropriate relationship with kelley and these e-mails are described as flirtatious. so reaction to this unfolding and unbelievable drama is coming in from all sides a senior official close to general allen said of jill kelley, she is a nice bored rich socialite. senator dianne feinstein who heads the select intelligence committee that will investigate this whole petraeus affair finds the whole situation very tawdry. >> it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off. and you see a whole new dimension to this. >> jennifer: of course, conservative republicans like former u.n. ambassador john bolton are frothing at the mustache to politicize the scandal. oh goodness sakes. >> i think we
cost the oil giants a billion dollars. welcome to "early start," i'm john berman. >> and i'm zoraida sambolin. nice to have you with us. it's 5:00 a.m. in the east. >>> this is cnn breaking news. >> we begin this morning with breaking news. a new crisis in the middle east, israeli and palestinian militants exchanging deadly fire near the israel/gaza border. they say it's in retaliation for ongoing rocket attacks into southern israel. >> triggered by an air strike that killed the top hamas military commander. sayre -- sara sidner is following the story. >> reporter: you can see gaza behind me. there has been air strike after air strike after air strike. we ourselves witnessed three air strikes, major hit. we could see fire and then three plumes of smoke. since then we've been also seeing and hearing rockets coming over into southern israel. we now know there are three people who have died in israel in an apartment building very near, within a 7 kilometer radius of gaza in israel. we also know that at least seven people have been killed here in gaza and the air strikes are continuing.
, november 14, 2012. thanks for sharing your time with us today. he's not that innocent. e-mails general john allen sent right in the middle of the general petraeus scandal. we are live with the latest from washington. >> and plus david petraeus personally investigated the benghazi attack, but according to some we don't need to hear it. >> and some didn't expect this. we will show you her fall. >> i don't want to watch. >>. >> fox and friends starts right now. >> what about the pyramid? >> i watched the game and i missed halftime. i thought the big story was the knicks beat the magic and little did i know the tragedy that took place in between periods. >> we will show that to you in just a moment. >> in the meantime there are a lot more questions than answers this morning about the scandal developing former cia director david petraeus and general john allen. here live in washington with the latest is peter. he still has some allies, right? >> one person who has seen the e-mail exchanges industries some of messages being the e-mail equivalent of phone sex. so today it's no longer going to be t
highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and commander who's been an important part of the nato isaf mission in afghanistan. >> and this morning nbc news is confirming a connection between general allen and jill kelley, the florida woman who kicked off the original fbi investigation which revealed the affair between general petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell. the newest twist, nbc confirming that broadwell e-mailed general allen first from the handle kelley patrol warning him about jill kelley painting her negatively.

that is on the table for democrats and republicans and that is the president and speaker of the house, john boehner and how they are going about this discussion as far as the bush tax cuts and america's sort of fiscal future. now, mark, i'm curious to hear your thoughts on this. first play sound from president obama and john boehner yesterday talking about doing the delicate dance of revenue raraisers. >> i'm not going to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest 2%. how you make up the trillion dollars just by closing loopholes and deductions, the math tends not work. >> i've outlined a framework how both parties can work together to avert the fiscal cliff without raising tax rates. ways to put revenue on the table without increasing tax rates. >> mark a baby version of the themes we've talked about before, which is to say you have a hard line part of the republican party then the deal making part of the republican party and the democrats. how do you think this turns out? can john boehner, do you think john boehner can corral or quiet the more radical elements of the republican party to come to the table
directly at odds with house speaker john boehner. >> could you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy? we've seen talk about a possible compromise that could leave rates the same but cap deductions for high-income earners. is that something that's acceptable? >> no. >> not at all no, way? >> no. the preponderance made it very clear in his campaign that there are not enough -- what you just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. you cannot go forward -- you have to cut some investments. if you cut too many you are hampering growth, you're hampering education, investments for the future. >> and even thousands of miles away it appears president obama is still focused on those negotiations. while touring a royal monastery with secretary of state clinton in thailand the president was overheard mentioning the budget talks to a monk. the president later clarified his comments -- >> he's not any monk. >> no. >> he has some big i vestments in the stock market. >> he later clarified his comments at a news conference. >> yes, we were working on
